Household energy bills will be about £600 higher per year by the end of the decade if the UK relies increasingly on gas, the government’s climate advisers warned on Thursday.
But the Committee on Climate Change found that bills would only be £100 higher than today’s average dual fuel bill of about £1,300, if the country concentrated on renewable power generation, such as wind power.
Entirely done and dusted then, eh?
Renewables will be cheaper than gas.
Their core assumption? The DECC one that gas prices will rise from where they are now. They take the DECC middle estimate.
What is the one thing that none of the DECC estimates take account of? Not even the low estimate?
Fracking for shale gas gets green light in UK
Ed Davey has lifted a suspension on the controversial practice of hydraulic fracturing, on the condition of strict seismic controls
That’s right, they’ve entirely, and deliberately, ignored the impact of shale gas. Which has, as we know, reduced the US price to what is it, one third of the current UK price?
Decc has been, entirely laughably, known to insist that all shale produced will be exported and thus not affect domestic prices.
They’re all lying, absolutely and deliberately. Hang the fuckers, all of them.
